Mumbai practically runs on its local trains and it was huge for Mumbaikaars when AC locals were announced. The first AC local ran from Borivali to Churchgate at 10:32 AM yesterday.

The train reached the Churchgate station at 11:16 AM, however, many people were left disappointed due to the sky-high fares.

The fare for a single journey in the AC local from Borivali to Churchgate (34 km) is ₹165. In non-AC trains, the fare is ₹15 for second class and ₹140 for first class.

There is a lot of confusion regarding the working of locals from now on.

And some genuine concerns were raised.

One user did a detailed review on the condition of the AC locals and we don’t know what to think:

The train will not operate on Saturdays and Sundays as it requires maintenance.
